After a week off it is time to step back into basketball. Today's Crossroads Classic needs to happen every year. I know it is on a trial basis, but the four teams have sold out Conseco Fieldhouse and tickets are on the secondary market for $145. For us, it is a chance to face the team that is the new standard of excellence for college basketball in this state.
Sadly, I won't be there today. I was told they did not have room when I applied for a credential, and by the time I was denied the venue was already sold out. So I get to watch on my couch with you good people and help out with this Open Thread. Feel free to sue it as a thread for game 2. I'll be headed up to Lafayette by then, as I get to cover my Kokomo Wildkats at Lafayette Jeff tonight. It is my first time this year that I get to see my Kats, so I am excited that I get to see both of my favorite teams.
